I think taking BSD code and releasing a copy under GPL is technically permitted, though
silly because the original BSD release would still apply so the GPL virus doesn't
stick. Of course, if you modify the original and license those mods under GPL, that makes
a difference, that limits access to the mods (but only the mods).
